Flu Season and Reducing Social Isolation


 As we creep into the cooler months, we’re thinking about what the current COVID-19 climate means for our upcoming flu season. How to the flu and COVID-19 interact, and when should you get vaccinated?

Associate Professor Joe Sasadeusz, Infectious Diseases Physician with the Peter Doherty Institute and the Royal Melbourne Hospital joins Michael and Cal this week. We talk the flu vax, coronavirus, pneumonia, and….eggs?

Later we are joined by Thorne Harbour Health’s Director of Services Carolyn Gillespie to talk about an exciting new announcement from Thorne Harbour increasing social connection in our communities during isolation.

We’re constantly updating information for our LGBTI communities on our COVID-19 hub page, including recently information for; family violence services, trans and gender divers people, queer women, and of course videos from Dr. George Forgan-Smith Smith.
